Startups for News & GEN News Hackathon Ceremony
The GEN News Hackathon is the last stage of the GEN Editors’ Lab programme 2012 and 2013: GEN has invited to Paris all the newsroom teams selected during the regional hackdays organised in newsrooms around the world (Berlin, Buenos Aires, Amsterdam, Voralberg, New York, Paris, Cairo, Delhi) from September 2012 to June 2013.

The teams will have had 48 hours (20 & 21 June) to develop an innovative journalism service or application. Similar to the national workshops, a newsroom team is composed of one journalist, one designer and one developer.

A jury of experts and editors will grant three awards during this ceremony, which will close the 2013 GEN News Summit.

During the same ceremony, the "Startup for News" winner will be designated after the vote of a dedicated jury and the participants' vote (through the GEN app.). The winner will be invited to next year's GEN News Summit as a speaker and will be given a booth at the NEWS EXPO (11 to 13 June 2014).
